Discussion with Bruce Mazza on SIP-enabled Distributed Enterprises

avaya (small).jpgAudioCodes has been working closely with Avaya for a number of years and as part of our exhibition at VoiceCon Orlando next week, I've invited Bruce Mazza, Director of Branch Solutions at Avaya to present during our AudioCodes / ScanSource Solutions Theater.  Avaya's Branch Office solution leverages SIP to connect remote branch offices to regional offices, which reduces operating costs for banks, insurance, retail and government customers that frequently have dispersed remote offices.

Bruce Mazza (crop).JPGAP: Bruce, thanks again for joining us in Orlando. What's the title/topic of your presentation?

BM:  "Distributed Enterprises -Reduce Operating Costs and Maintain Reliability"
AP: How does the Avaya application help enterprises in this difficult economy?    

BM: The joint solution from Avaya and AudioCodes will help medium and large businesses with many small branch office locations to reduce the cost of deploying and managing communications by centralizing trunking access and reducing monthly fees, reducing inter-enterprise long-distance fees by running voice over the customers WAN, centralizing management to reduce overhead costs, all while increasing branch user productivity through value-added UC applications.   Since the solution is survivable with the AudioCodes SAS capability matched with Avaya's SIP 96xx phones, branch office users can have the assurance of business continuity.
AP: What will this solution mean to VARs that service companies with remote branches?  

BM:  VARs will enjoy the opportunity to address medium and large enterprises with a full complement of branch solutions from Avaya, and to address the very small branches that are so prevalent with the survivable SIP branch solution from AudioCodes and Avaya.  Opportunities exist for product sales in Data Centers, and Branches, as well as services to design, build, and deploy customers branch networks.
AP: What about the Avaya strategy is different from before the economy went sour?   

BM: Frankly, we had planned to introduce this solution before the economy went sour. Now customers will be even more compelled to implement the solution to gain the OPEX savings.
AP: Share with us who would get the most out of your presentation at VoiceCon?    

BM: I believe IT Manager, Telecom Directors and CIOs of companies that numerous remote branches would find the session very helpful. 
AP :Where would someone learn more about the Avaya Branch Office solution?    

BM: We'll have information at both the Avaya and AudioCodes booths with live demonstrations that can be seen by attendees.

Bruce's presentation is scheduled for Tuesday, March 31st at 2:00 PM EDT in the AudioCodes / ScanSource Solutions Theater within booth #931.

Did I mention that by attending you can win one of 14 iPod Touch PM3 players that we are giving away?
